Topic - Namibia Press Agency

The Namibia Press Agency (NAMPA) is the national news agency of the Republic of Namibia. It was founded in 1987 as "Namibia Press Association" by the SWAPO, and resuscitated after independence under its current name in 1991. Its operation is regulated by the Namibia Press Agency Act of 1992. Up until now, the agency offers text and picture services, but no audio or video material. About 20 journalists and 30 other staff members work for NAMPA. Aside from its Windhoek headquarter, the agency has offices in Swakopmund, Gobabis, Ongwediva/Oshakati, Opuwo and Rundu. Most media in Namibia rely on the services of NAMPA, especially for international news. - Source: Wikipedia
